So far he has proven that he can over come all of the negativity that has been spilled around him because of his skin color.

The assassination shocked America and soon after led to counterculture and rebellious teenagers during the late sixties early seventies.

After the winning of the presidency President-Elect Barack Obama made history of the first African American man to ever become President. This made the world see that a change had arrived.
